Abond warming up on the Phoenix
A great route with a fun variety of moves: tricky, thin crux down low, sustained climbing above to a powerful bouldery crux higher up.
Graded at 12c in the guidebook, this route may be a bit easier...?
Right of the 'main area', this starts just left of Tic Tac Smuggler (12d), and right of the tufa pulling Wow Wow Mei Ao (11c). The large starting block for Face Route and Merry Christmas are just to the right. It starts by climbing up to a low ledge, then a thin face crux.
Bolts to a fixed 2 bolt anchor.
